Bill Clinton to launch effort to help Katrina families

Tax initiative could help low-income workers

Victims of Hurricane Katrina may be eligible for the earned income tax credit (EITC). If they qualify, they may claim the refund.

Former President Bill Clinton announces a tax initiative to help Katrina families. Millions of people meet the requirements for the EITC, which refunds payroll and income taxes to low-wage workers, but do not claim it. Some poor families can be credited as much as $4,400, depending on their earnings and number of eligible children. Details from The Associated Press/Newsday.

Hasan, Dr. Deb, Shi: I think that this tax credit will certainly benefit every familiy that qualifies.

Rose: Without a doubt, Bill Clinton remains very popular and influential in his private life. He also remains active on public policy issues. I don't see him fading into the shadows anytime soon.
